A Fox News poll conducted October 6-8 of registered voters suggested that 51% of Americans want President Trump impeached and removed from office.
The full results of the survey also indicate that 4% want him impeached, but not removed and 40% oppose impeachment completely.
That 51% statistic is a record high of surveys on Trump impeachment, up 9% from July!
You buying it?
President Trump marked the change in what and how Fox reports "news" these days, ever since he got elected in a few tweets, where he unloaded on the network:
Here's what the results of theFox News poll regarding Trump impeachment over Ukrainegate showed:
A new high of 51 percent wants Trump impeached and removed from office, another 4 percent want him impeached but not removed, and 40 percent oppose impeachment altogether. In July, 42 percent favored impeachment and removal, while 5 percent said impeach but don’t remove him, and 45 percent opposed impeachment.
Since July, support for impeachment increased among voters of all stripes: up 11 points among Democrats, 5 points among Republicans and 3 among independents. Support also went up among some of Trump’s key constituencies, including white evangelical Christians (+5 points), white men without a college degree (+8), and rural whites (+10).
Among voters in swing counties (where Hillary Clinton and Trump were within 10 points in 2016), support for impeachment increased to 52 percent, up from 42 percent in July.
A lot has happened since the July Fox poll on impeachment -- namely, the launch of an impeachment inquiry in the House following allegations Trump improperly pressured Ukraine to investigate the Bidens’ dealings in that country. The 9-point increase in support for impeachment since July, however, doesn’t appear to be based solely on the latest allegations. To that point, more Democrats favor impeaching Trump (85 percent) than consider his call with Ukraine’s president an impeachable offense (76 percent). The same holds true among independents: 39 percent favor impeachment, while 30 percent describe the Ukraine call as impeachable.
The 4-in-10 voters opposing impeachment give a variety of reasons, including: Trump did nothing wrong (21 percent), it is politically motivated (20 percent), and don’t believe allegations (15 percent).
Approval of Trump’s job performance is down a couple of points to 43 percent, while 55 percent disapprove. Last month, it was 45-54 percent. Currently, 86 percent of Republicans approve compared to 89 percent in September.
Breitbart said the following about the poll:
A Fox News poll published Wednesday shows a record 51 percent of respondents support the impeachment and removal of President Donald Trump, a nine-point increase from the news network’s most previous survey on July 19th.
The poll shows an additional four percent believe that the president should be impeached yet remain in office, while 40 percent expressed opposition to impeachment in general. Five percent stated they were undecided on the matter.
The poll comes as House Democrats are attempting to move expeditiously with an impeachment inquiry against President Trump over a partisan CIA officer mischaracterization the president’s summer telephone call with the leader of Ukraine in a so-called “whistleblower” complaint. Both the credibility of the so-called “whistleblower” and his complaint have come in question as the officer was revealed as a registered Democrat with a previous “professional relationship” with a Democratic presidential candidate, while his accusations are based on secondhand information.
His chief claim is that President Trump pressured Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to look into allegations of corruption against former Vice President and White House hopeful Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden. Both President Trump and Zelensky have vehemently denied any pressured was applied and the White House released a transcript of their call to illustrate no wrongdoing occurred.
